Pumpkin Seeds Recipe

Try to make best tasty Pumpkin Seed with many versions: Sweet, Indian, Spanish, Italian, Barbecue.. I did the barbecue version and they came out perfect!


Seed the pumpkin: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Using a spoon, leave some strings and pulp on your seeds.

Clean the seeds: Separate the seeds from the stringy pulp, rinse the seeds in a colander under cold water, then shake dry. Don’t blot with paper towels; the seeds will stick.

Dry them: Spread pumpkin seeds in a single layer on an oiled baking sheet and roast 30 minutes to dry them out.

Add spices: Toss the seeds with olive oil, salt and your choice of spices (see below). Return to the oven and bake about 20 more minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.

Sweet: Toss with cinnamon and sugar (do not use salt in step 4).

Indian: Toss with garam masala; mix with currants after roasting.

Spanish: Toss with smoked paprika; mix with slivered almonds after roasting.

Italian: Toss with grated parmesan and dried oregano.

Barbecue: Toss with brown sugar, chipotle chile powder and ground cumin.
